Creative Therapy

Anyone who doesn't colour will probably not understand why I spent a good while making this card on Friday. My Mum was dying, I could not do anything and I make a card - I know sounds crazy. Thursday evening my Mum had a massive brain haemorrhage and was effectively in a coma. We just had to wait. My sister wanted a farewell card for a friend who is going to Holland so I just got on and made it.

The image is from Carmen Gamble @ Beyond The Fringe Crafts and the words were translated in google and added before colouring with Copics.

Mum passed away Friday evening and we are all trying to come to terms with our loss.

A little bit of creative play

One of my students celebrates his Birthday during the school holidays so here is the card I have made for him. I will give it to his Mum today, at our last session, so she can keep it until 27th. Jester is quite an appropriate image!

This card is for the JUGS301 challenge to include gold - gold pen, gold embossing and gold card. It is also for F4A281 at Splitcoast which is to use a big image - this Magenta one is wood mounted and is about 4 inches square. I worked with Inktense pencils for a change.

I am hoping next year he may have calmed down a little and lessons will be more rewarding.
